So, I recently watched a video of a motorcycle running from the cops. Dude was squidding it up pretty bad except for a helmet. He didn't even have the bike registered, insured, or licensed. Something I did notice was that he kept his index finger on the clutch at all times. So I made a comment on this. Now, and of course because it is YouTube, I am being called stupid, I should fuck off, and I know nothing about riding. Some also say that it is for "Safety" in case of a hard stop. None of this make any sense to me. If it was for safety then you would think MSF, AMA, Roadcraft and other riding schools would teach you to do this. Also, professional riders would do it as well. Also, the gentlemen in the video still has to bring up the other three fingers to initiate the clutch pull thus negating the split second reaction of a one finger pull. Also, what clutch is so easy to pull you can do it with one finger? Not even hydraulic clutches are that easy. So, again what is the point of keeping a finger on the clutch and do any of you do it?
